Terrorist attacks in Spain, which isn’t militarily involved in Iraq or Syria, show such attacks aren’t self-defense, but radicals want to annihilate the world and to create a global caliphate, says anti-terror expert Jennifer Breedon. Other analysts join the discussion.

Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIL/ISIS) claimed responsibility for the attack in Barcelona’s popular tourist street, Las Ramblas.

Anti-terror expert and legal analyst Jennifer Breedon says the location of the attack and the fact ISIS says it was behind it is “significant,” but not surprising.

“It is not very surprising because now ISIS is being tackled in Syria, they are being surrounded, they are about to lose Raqqa in Syria, they have already lost Mosul in Iraq. They have already been trying to regroup and rebrand using some elements of Al-Qaeda, but they are rebranding them and regrouping back in Libya. Libya has been a failed state for years now, and so some of the North African elements are either trying to escape their countries to go to Libya to train with ISIS or straight up just going to sneak into Europe,” she told RT.
